About this Research Topic
We aim to discuss a broad spectrum of research efforts and breakthroughs in regenerative technologies. Primary research themes include but are not limited to stem cell engineering, tissue engineering, organ-on-a-chip, 3D bioprinting, organoid, biomaterials, biomechanics, and mechanobiology. We envision that this collection will address current challenges and potential breakthroughs for the development of in vitro organ models, disease simulation and its mechanistic studies, and validation of pharmaceuticals and biotherapeutics. Research topics that cover the development of new tissue constructs, tissue repair models, application and validation of current regenerative technologies in vivo or in a clinical setup, and advances in regenerative technology policy and regulations are also pertinent to discuss.
In this Research Topic, we will collect high-quality, high-impact articles that will be published by early-career investigators (within 10 years after completing their Ph.D., M.D., or other equivalent terminal degrees or 7 years since starting an independent Principal Investigator position). We accept Original Research articles as well as other types of articles (e.g., Review, Methods, Perspective) that discover basic science, technical advancement, and application of regenerative medicine and relevant technologies.
